Book Review || The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo




Hey Friends,

As today is wednesday I would usually have a #midweekmotivation for you guys but today I thought I would do something different. Today I thought I would share with you guys a book that has been extremely motivating for me in the past few months. That book is - The Life- Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo.

This book has gained extreme popularity in the past year or so & for good reason. I decided to check this book out for myself in the new year on audible. I have to say I was kind of skeptical in the beginning but as I made my way through the book everything she was saying was starting to make a lot of sense!

I mentioned in my post about beginning my minimalism journey (If you missed it you can check it out here - Slaying it 2017 || Beginning my Minimalism Journey!) I spoke about how after moving back to my family home last november I felt like my life was just over-flowing with stuff!. I hadn't given anything away or thrown anything out, possibly ever!! (I mean obviously apart from rubbish or something that was actually broken) Over the years I had just been consuming, consuming, consuming yet somehow my life and home felt empty. I mean obviously not physically as I could bearly move for things but it was time to change.





It was around this time that I downloaded The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying up by Marie Kondo. I had heard/read so many reviews & thought it just might be what I needed! I was indeed correct. Like I mentioned above, in the the beginning I was quite skeptical but as I listened on I really came to see what Marie Kondo was talking about.

This book talks alot about having a sense of pride & feeling of joy for your possessions, the things you keep in your life & surround yourself with. I realised this was one thing I was lacking in my life. Although I thought I keep my things in good condition I realised that it was impossible to truely take care of everything I owned when in all honesty I had forgotten about some of the things I owned.

I also had 3 wardrobes bursting full of clothes! Who needs this amount of clothes!? I decided to go through them all & in Kon Marie fashion discard any item that didn't bring me joy! I wouldn't say I have a small wardrobe now by any means & to be honest maybe I could go through it again.. I do suffer with a small little hoarder voice in my head. However I am making headway & thats the main thing.

She also talks about clutter impacting your life, how we use (I am included in this) tidying as a way of avoiding other issues in our life. She says that through the process of tidying we also have to, whether consciously or not, examine our lives, where we are & where we are headed. This was one of the things that in the beginning of the book I didn't truly understand or believe but its true. As we go through everything we own we see that everything is either a reflection of us & our personality or a reflection who we were & where we were in our lives at specific moment in time. I found this part fascinating if I'm honest. I always find psychology fascinating. If you think about it, if you are going through all your earthly possessions then you are going through your life through things. It's forcing you to remember & evaluate things & believe me that can be scary in itself but really it's no wonder that people truly find their passion after they clean up and go through everything they own, as Marie Kondo talks about in the book!!






So many things in this book stuck with me. I honestly felt like finally tidying was being explained to me in a way that was actually clicking with me!! I mean why keep things in your life that don't truely make you happy!? With a smaller collection of things that truely bring you joy, it means your life will bring you more joy & you will be able to (& want to) take better care of your things. Also your house will feel more light, airy, spacious & finally more personal. Your home will be your kingdom!

In this book Marie Kondo gives many case studies & also answers many questions or addresses many thoughts you or I would have during a tidy session. I found this not only helpful but interesting too!!

Would I recommend this book?

100% I found this book both interesting & helpful. I think even if you don't feel like all the information is for you, you would definitely get something out of it!! At the very least I think it would give you the motivation to get up & get your home in order!!

I am currently reading here second book Spark Joy at the moment (You will already know this if you follow me on Twitter, Links Below) I will have a review coming soon!! Stay tuned!!)




Have you read this book!? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!!

Monthly Highlights 2017 ~ February ~



Hey Friends,

Now I don't usually post a Lifestyle post on a Tuesday but as it is the last day of the month I thought why not!? I am happy to report this month, although again not one of the best or easiest months of my life it has a lot easier than January (If you missed that post, you can check it out here - Monthly Highlights 2017 ~ January ~

So here are my highlights for the month - 

Learning more about my family

Okay so what I'm about to talk about isn't exactly what I would call a highlight. Instead it was extremely difficult & something that I would not like to have to do again & wish didn't have to be done in the first place. As I mentioned in my post last month, on the 27th of January after a tough battle we lost my beloved grandmother. As I am writing this I can't believe its been a month. So as you can imagine the first couple of weeks of February entailed cleaning out my grandmothers home. This was a long and difficult process but during the process I learned so much about my family. I thought I knew my family so well but there was so much more I never realised. There were many times that I wished I could ask my nan things but unfortunately it was not possible.   

These past 6 weeks or so I have been so grateful for my family & it has really made me appreciate the people in my life!! I wouldn't really say it was a highlight parse but it is something that has been on the fore front of my mind. I have learned so much & realise now more than ever just how important family & loved ones are in our lives. 


Trip to Kerry

I decided I need to get out for a few days. I decided to go back to kerry & visit the people I missed while I was away. I had not seen some of them in 3 months! Like I said above if I have learn one thing already this year is to keep the people you love around you! I had such a good 3 days in Kerry. I got to see so many people I love and just relax for a while. Just enjoy the scenery & surroundings again for a while. Part of me can not wait to get back there in a couple of weeks, the other part of me is not mentally prepared to leave my home & family again! 





Dinner with Bestie

It had been so long since I had just been doing normal things like meeting friends for coffee, lunch, dinner, that I jumped at my friends offer to go out for dinner! It was such a good night, catching up! & the food was delicious! This was definitely a highlight this month!!


Trip to Dublin

Last weekend I also took a trip to Irelands capital city, Dublin city. I had tickets to see Russell Howard Live in Vicar Street. It was just brilliant!! I love him!! Honestly one of the best Gigs / Shows I have ever been to! I will definitely be going to another gig again the future! Well worth it!! Also it is one the things on my 30 before 30 list (You check it out here if you haven't read it already - 30 Things to do before I'm 30) The rest of the trip was great too! I stayed at one of my besties apartment. We chilled out, watched movies & reality TV, ate junk food & take-away & we also went to see the movie Sing. It was so good!! Highly recommend it if you are looking for a feel-good, funny, easy to watch movie!! Loved it!! 







Spark Joy

For the train journey home from Dublin I decided to pop into Eason's to see if they would have this book. I really wanted something for the two and half hour journey but I didn't want to just pick up anything. I've had my eye on this book ever since I "read" the first one on Audible around Christmas time, but it was never really in my budget & was very expensive anytime I spotted it. I couldn't find it available on Audible.  
This year I plan to become debt free therefore I cannot be spending money all the time & have to watch what I spend my money on, budgeting every purchase. I told myself that if they had this book for under €10 I would buy it. It seemed unlikely as everywhere I had seen it previously it had bee between €12 - €20.  
It was my lucky day!! €8.99! It was on sale!! So I picked it up and I'm about half way through it now. I will have reviews coming up on both books very soon!! 




So as you can see February was not so bad. Still tough but slowly, everyday it is getting easier & It will continue to get easier. I have my nan watching over me now & I know she will protect us & guide us! 

Let me know in the comments what your highlights have been this month as I would love to share your happiness & enjoyment!!

Slaying it 2017 || Beginning my Minimalism Journey!



Hello Friends,

Today I wanted to talk to you about something that has kind of just captured my attention in the past couple of months. That is minimalism. I know this concept has been around for a while now & if you search it on YouTube or google blog posts on it you will probably find more than you will ever be able to watch or read in a lifetime. However that is not why I thought it was for me. I always liked the idea of it but I also loved shopping (I still do, but I feel a little differently about it now)  I remember watching videos on it thinking "Thats nice but Nah, its not for me" I always thought I was mostly an intentional shopper, therefore everything I owned, I needed & had a purpose. I was wrong. Here is what happened - 

Last year I moved twice. once to kerry & once back again when the season had ended. Although moving was a hassle the first time, once it was done, it was done & didn't really think much about. However this was different when I moved back into the family home for a few months. 

First of all, what I failed to realise the first time was that when I was moving out I only took what I needed / wanted for those 8 months. Therefore there were still a load of my possessions left in the family home. Also in the 8 months I had been gone I had also been shopping and accumulated more things. As you can imagine when moved back I had all the items I had previously left in the house, all the items I had taken with me & now all the items I had accumulated in the 8 months all under the same roof. To make matters worse after working so hard (yes I had an amazing 8 months) I still had student loan debt & little to no savings.... something had to change. 




Looking around at all the bags and boxes that covered almost every inch of floor space I had in my room and the hall & also my brothers room (He no longer lives in) I knew something had to change. This was no way to live. Also not only was it not possible to love and truly appreciate all the items I owned but if I'm honest I had forgotten about half of them. The sheer amount of clothes along was enough to almost to make me want to quit before I had even started, Make up & beauty was another one.... I felt completely overwhelmed. It honestly looked like a physical representation of how it felt to be inside my head sometimes. 

This had to change! I went onto to Audible & bought - The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying by Marie Kondo & although I was already ready to have this in order it provided me with the direction & inspiration I needed. I will have a full review of this book coming soon. I am currently reading - Spark Joy by Marie Kondo - The sequel to her first hit. 





So far I think I am making good headway with my lifes possessions. Up to the last couple of months I had never given anything away in my life just consumed, consumed, consumed. It is impossible to truly value or take care of your possessions when there are so many, you don't know what you have, you have nowhere to put them & honestly you never use them. 

I have a little hoarder voice in me that says "But what if you will need it in the future? Then you will have to spend more money trying to replace it" Since reading the book & watching video's I now see giving things away in a different light. Why should I be selfish & keep something just because I can when someone else could really love & appreciate it & put it to good use!? Besides majority of us have enough possessions that would almost last a life time yet we continue to purchase anyway. 

I am not going to stop shopping completely, Heck I have a haul post as my most recent post on my beauty blog (Links below) but my shopping will definitely be more intentional now. 






I am nowhere near complete with the minimalisation of my world, but I am definitely on right track. I'm hoping that minimalism & getting better with my finances will work hand & hand so that I can focus on enjoying my life rather than spend my life worrying about tidying & debts & then shopping to make myself feel better.

I am just beginning my journey here but I will be taking you with me so if you are beginning too then stay tuned & we can do this together!! If you are more of a vet at this, with alot more experiance than me please feel free to leave helpful hints & tips in the comments below. They would be very much appreciated!!

Beauty La Linda Lifestyle || Slaying it 2017 || Here come the girls!!




Hey Friends,

HAPPY GALENTINES DAY!!

Today I wanted to talk to you about a newer holiday/trend that is sweeping the nation.. that is GALENTINES DAY. It is a time we take to truely appreciate our besties!! A time where we push all boys / romantic love to the side and just focus on our friendships with our girls, our nearest and dearest that have been there for us through thick and thin. They have seen us through the good times where we thought life couldn't possibly get any better & through the times where we felt like we never wanted to leave our bed again, when all we wanted was to hide indoors, eat ice-cream & hang out with netflix. Yes us girls have been through it all together & finally we creating a day to mark this!!


So how will we celebrate!? Here are a few of my favourite ways to spend time with my friends!! 

If you have time to plan it -

  • A trip, whether that be over night trip, road trip or just a day trip to somewhere fun like the zoo!
  • You can plan a spa day or a beauty salon trip day!
  • Food is always a good idea, how about lunch, dinner, coffee, pancakes..... hmm I getting hungry just thinking about it!! 
  • You could meet at one of your homes & get crafty, bake or even just have a chill day with TV in pjs and lots of chats.
If you want make a night of it / or time has just slipped away - 
  • You could make a night out if too. Date night? Cocktails? Get dressed up & your drink on? Movie night? Or just treat yourselves to a fancy dinner? Why not? You deserve it after all!!
  • Don't forget it doesn't have to be expensive if its not in the budget! You can a pizza & netflix night!! Your still going to have a blast when its you and you besties!!


If your like me & time has not been your friend lately then remember you can always make a date to celebrate #galentinesday in the future! My bestie & I are going to spend the weekend together as we no longer live close to each other anymore so I'm really excited for that!! So even if you don't have the time to celebrate today. Give 'em a text and let them know you love 'em & make a plan to do something fun just the 2 of you in the near future!! 

Never take the people in your life for granted! They deserved to feel appreciated too!! 

Love you guys & I hope you are having an amazing #galentinesday where ever you are!! Let me know in the comments how you a spending this wonderful day!! I'd to hear what you and your partner in crime will be getting up to!!

Beauty La Linda - Lifestyle || Midweek Motivation || Slaying it 2017 || Procrastination - The Enemy of Productivity!



Hey Friends,

Ok so I'm going to be real. Today I woke up feeling like I have no motivation to do anything. I feel like the Bruno Marz Soundtrack should be playing in the backround of my life "Today I don't feel like doing anything...I just wana lay in my bed" As I was indeed lying in my bed thinking of all the reasons why I didn't have time to be productive today, how I didn't have a post ready & all that I thought to myself I need to get up off my ass & get in the productive mood again!! This procastination isn't helping anyone, least of all me!!

I like to think of myself as a self-motivated person but the truth is I'm not as self-motivated as I thought. I'm a really easy going boss, to myself atleast. In the past I have been in charge in work-places & in that environment I can be hella Productive & get shizz done. However I have realised when I don't have to get up at a certain time, be ready & leave for work I slack off. Not having a routine really messes with me as in my head I just think "ah its fine. I can do it later" However what I fail to remember is that if I had done it when I was supposed to I wouldn't be doing what feels like over-time, eating in to my personal time with family & friends.

At the moment my life is a bit chaotic if I'm honest (if you read my monthly highlights - January, then you will know what I'm talking about) so I can't be too hard on myself, truthfully I'm quite proud of how much I have accomplished in the past month, considering. However now is the time to get back in action. My new year, when it comes to goals, starts now!! I guess its just harder to get started then I thought. So I thought I would share some of my tips for overcoming procrastination & I would really love & appreciate it if you could leave any of your tips in the comments below as I really need to get out of this slump. Send all your slump busters my way!!



Tips for overcoming procrastination


1. Why am I procrastinating??
I think if you know the answer to this you can fix it quicker. Is there a reason behind your procrastination. Undermotivated? Overwhelmed? Tired? Sick of your job? Need a change? Laziness? Find out your reason, then figure out a solution to help keep you on track.

2. Remember your goals
I did this, this morning. I really didn't want to get started, which to be honest I think is the hardest part. I started thinking about all my goals for this year and all the reasons I started blogging in the first place!! I also thought of how happy & proud I was going to feel this evening when it was all done. My end goal is to be my own boss, whether that be with blogging or any other venture I may have so I thought to myself if that's the case I better get over myself fairly lively or I will never make it!! The best boss I have to be, is to myself!
  
3. Think of how far you have already come
Another thing that might get your butt moving is to think of how far you have come. Think of where you were when you started! Now think of where you are now! Do you want to keep going!? Now think of where you can be in a month/years time! Don't you want to find out? Don't you want to know what that feels like?

4. Go through the wall
Sometimes our procrastination can be based around mundane daily chores & errands that we all know have to be done but exactly fit into our goals for life. Well they do we just don't realise it. I mean think of all the chores & errands you run on a daily/weekly basis. Right now take them all away... what would your life look like... exactly. All things keep us ticking over but lets be honest they can be a drag. For these I tend to use the 
  • Timing method 

I set a timer for a certain length of time to tackle one chore. Whatever I can get done in that time gets done, Whats left can be left until tomorrow. However with this method you will find that either A. You are more productive & quicker as you will naturally race against the clock or B. once you get started you won't care about the timer and end up doing the chore until it is completed. 

  • Make  a list

I think once you make a to-do list you automatically feel like you are being more productive (procrastination in disguise) however if you use the list & tick off all the items along the way it can be a very satisfying feeling. 

  • Get started

I always think just get started & you'll be fine. Starting is the hardest part! Once you get over the first 5/10 mins, you're off! & generally there's no stopping you then.

  • Reward System

Sometimes there's just no getting past it! The spoilt child comes out in all of us and we want a reward for doing what (realistically) we should be doing anyway. Sometimes however thats all that will get us moving. Like I have told myself that after I complete this post I am going relax with a nice cup of tea & a doughnut for my lunch. Don't get me wrong I love blogging with all my heart but sometimes I wish I could just talk and the computer would do the rest of the work #laziness & today is one of those days #bloggerproblems. Just like my reward of tea & a doughnut, you rewards dont have to be big or extravagant they just have to get the job done!    

4. Watch or read motivating material
I find that when I'm in a slump if I watch motivating Youtube videos or read inspiring blog posts they I feel ready to take on the world, like "I want a piece of that action!" I find watching or reading about other peoples success very motivating!! If you haven't tried it before give it a go & let me know what you think!!




Those are all my tips to get you through a period of procrastination, where all your ideas & thoughts are filled with good and productive intent but you can't seem to get off the couch or stop watching re-runs of reality TV like TOWIE & The Jersey Shore #guilty. However by the time this day is out I will have made out a proper routine for myself for the upcoming weeks & see if that helps, what feels like a constant 3pm slump! 

Don't forget to leave you helpful hints below for me in the comments!!

Beauty La Linda - Lifestyle || Slaying it 2017 || 5 Tips on staying motivated & on track!!




Hey there Friends!,

In the past month I have been talking a lot about goals for the year! What better time to take a moment to look at your life & where you would like to be in 12 months time? The tips I am going to talk to you about today not only apply to short term, yearly goals but can also be applied to long term goals like buying a house, financial goals, health goals, work or business goals.... etc.. 

I have touched on this over the past couple of weeks if you would like to read those posts all the links will be below!! So here are my tips on staying motivated and on track when it comes to your goals and resolutions!!


Get Visual

I find that if you have your goals displayed and you are surrounded by them then its easier to keep them fresh and at the fore front of your mind. This means even sub-consciously working towards them everyday. You will start making decisions based around your goals!! You can try making a vision board. I haven't tried this yet but it is definitely something I am interested in trying. There are many Youtubers that show you how to make some really great boards. I think you should write your goals everywhere, In your home, office, on your phone, laptop / tablet, anywhere where you will see them everyday & have no way of forgetting them. 

List makers

This is for all my fellow planners and daily list makers out there. If you plan your months, weeks & days don't forget to add them in. If you have told yourself that you are going to set 10 mins a day to something, add it into your planner. Always be aware of your goals when planning your life... how else will you work to achieve them.




Track, Track, Track

Always be tracking your progress. Try not to let it consume your life but at the same time if you always have an idea of where you are with your goal then you will always not only know how far you have left to go but even more important how far you have come since you started & that's always motivating!! 


Reward

When achieving most goals there will always be milestones. These milestones must be rewarded!! That way you can build up momentum. There is no better feeling than rewarding yourself for something you know you have worked for and you truely deserve! The pride, happiness, & victory you feel is one of the most motivating things in the world. You feel ready to take on the world!!


Don't Give up!

During every Journey (Just like life) there will always be set backs. It's going to happen one way or another. These moments are going to be the toughest and define your success. You have to roll with the punches, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get back in the ring. Keep going, re-adjust, if theres something you really want then there's not that much that can put a complete stop to it apart from you! You are the only thing standing in your own way! Remember that!   


These are just a few tips I have for staying motivated. Its not easy but it can be done with a little hardwork and perseverance. I believe in all of you!! Please leave me a comment with any tips of your own! I would love to hear them. I always enjoying hearing new tips on how to stay on track with my goals!!

Monthly Highlights! - January 2017



Hey Friends,

Last year I started these monthly highlights posts. I loved the concept of them. The concept of truly appreciating every thing that brings you happiness and highlighting them as each month goes by. Its also like a little happiness diary for me, one that I can look back on later in life. It also allows me to stop for a minute and really think about all the great things in my life & take a minute to be truly grateful.  

Last year I ended up missing out on couple of months due to being busy & forgetfulness. So this year I resolved to take it seriously & do my best not to forget. However I very nearly didn't post one this month. Not because I forgot but because I didn't know what to write as I'm honestly don't think I ever want to remember the month that has just passed. It has honestly been one the hardest and most horrible months I have ever had to go through & I definitely didn't feel like marking the occasion. In the past month I have lost a family member, my relationship ended & the future I thought I was going to have is now gone & my home was broken into, ransacked & robbed, all in 21 days to be exact. As you can imagine the last thing I wanted to write a post on was monthly highlights.

However I started thinking, If there is ever a time to remember the good in the world & the people, opportunities & things I have to be truly grateful, now is it. Everyday right now is hard but it will get easier, I have to believe it. So here are the highlights / things I have to be grateful for starting this year out January 2017.

My Family

Due to the circumstances our family has been together almost everyday for going on 3 weeks now. Although we would generally get on well, months, even years could pass by without us noticing before seeing some family members. I have seen more of my family in 2 weeks than I have in 2 years. This week I have even met baby cousins for the first time. They are awesome & reminds me I need to make more time for my family! For this I am grateful. 

My Blog

In the past month even with all the craziness I managed to publish posts. I realised that this is my happy place alot of the time. It takes my mind off things & is something I truly adore. I have realised that this is where my I want to focus my efforts now. I want to immerse myself in this and watch it grow and develop. I am truly grateful for all my followers and readers who just make this whole thing so much more worthwhile. I love reading your comments & interacting with you. Im am so lucky to have this little blog that I get to share with you!!


Friends

During this difficult time so many people have been here to support us. This means the world to both my family & myself. People are so good, Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. They really are appreciated more than you will ever know. 

Charlie

My baby charlie, most of you will have heard me mention him before. He's my kitty cat & has barely left my side when I have been at home this month. I honestly don't know what I would have done without him. As I am writing this on my bed he is curled up beside me. Somehow I always feel calmer when he's around. Never take your animals for granted guys. They know & feel more than you know.   


Opportunities

Right now my life is starting again at ground zero.. I'm not exactly sure where I am headed right now or where I will be this time next year but I've decided to look at it as a beginning & not an end. I think that not only is this an easier and happier way of looking things but I also think it will focus me in the right direction rather, than focus on everything I have lost, I want focus on everything I have & the adventure that lies ahead of me. 


I don't know if would call them highlights or just things I have been extremely grateful for this month, but these are things that have kind of been keeping me going. Hopefully from February on things will start to look up and there will be many highlights to come this year. 

I hope the start to your year has been much better. I hope you've a great kick start to 2017. Let me know in the comments some your highlights on 2017 so far!!
